Sunrise over Borobudur


image

This was my lone ranger photo tour. I joined a Borobudur sunrise tour on Saturday early morning 23 April 2016.  Four o’clock in the morning I was picked up in Laxston hotel Jogyakarta by the Kresna Tour. I have got up around 3.30 am and I had been ready with my camera.

The driver picked me up with a Luxio car. In the car had been around two ladies tourist from Spain who wanted to see the sunrise over Borobudur from Punthuk Setumbu.

I got in the car quickly and sit in the front by the driver. The car ran very fast to Menoreh hill nearby Borobudur. It took about less than one hour from Jogyakarta to Punthuk Setumbu. Punthuk Serumbu meant the top of the hill named Setumbu. It was actually the top of Menoreh hill.

After buying the ticket we climb the hill from the parking area to the Top of the hill or Punthuk Setumbu. The day was still dark. I and the two ladies from Spain climbed the hill to the Punthuk Setumbu. And we arrived at the top around five am. Then we took position for photography and waited for the sunrise.
